Dantech Electronic Engineering, the UK manufacturer of specialist power supplies and ancillary equipment designed specifically for security applications, has been awarded Benchmark magazine’s ‘Recommended’ status for its SecurePoE product range.
The magazine awarded the coveted Recommended status after thorough testing of the Dantech DA1110-IN-4-G SecurePoE MultiSpanUPS, under varied conditions, and using a wide range of cameras, access control devices, telephony and non-security PoE-equipped peripherals.Click here to read the full Benchmark article
The Benchmark ‘Recommended’ Dantech range of SecurePoE products includes indoor and outdoor (IP66 rated) Midspan and Multispan models. The Midspan units are designed for use with separate network switches, while the Multispan models include a Cisco switch, with single, 2 or 4 ports, or 4 and 8 port 19” rack-mount enclosure models.
The magazine’s testers commended Dantech’s SecurePoE MultiSpanUPS on its security, simple set-up and build-quality, and noted a consistent power delivery, with all channels delivering on full load, saying:
“The SecurePoE MultiSpanUPS delivers a good degree of performance, and deserves the ‘Secure’ part of its name.”
Offering the same functionality as Dantech’s SecurePoE range of products but supplied as standard with replaceable high-quality Yuasa stand-by battery packs, the SecurePoE MultispanUPS tested is designed to provide uninterruptable, highly-reliable PoE power for any network device, in a secure and practical package.
Dantech SecurePoE MultispanUPS protects connected devices from service interruption during any mains failure or network outage. This allows PoE connected devices such as IP cameras or edge recording devices to maintain their operation. Dantech SecurePoE MultiSpanUPS products also allow installers to connect to PoE powered devices simply and quickly – meaning easier installation, set-up and maintenance. They provide true uninterruptable power, avoiding camera reboot time and valuable video footage being missed, and ensure system installers and security teams can retain total control of security systems, without the need to implement changes through an IT department or 3rd party supplier.
Additionally, SecurePoE MultiSpanUPS can be used to relieve pressure on existing UPS systems, whilst economically extending stand-by times. Multi-port versions afford streamlined power protection, meaning users can manage power quality and availability from one central point, rather than via the complications of managing multiple, disparate outlets - one centralized Dantech SecurePoE MidspanUPS protects all connected devices.
In their verdict of the Dantech SecurePoE MultispanUPS, the Benchmark test team said:
“In modern security systems, a consistent power delivery – and a degree of resilience to keep systems running is essential."
“Increasingly, Benchmark is meeting installers and integrators who are reporting that more end users are not simply demanding a degree of resilience from their systems, but are seeking evidence that proper steps are being taken. The implementation of secure and monitored power serves that purpose, and as such the SecurePoE MultiSpanUPS from Dantech has to be recommended.”

Dantech Electronic Engineering, the UK manufacturer of specialist power supplies and ancillary equipment designed specifically for security applications, has launched a new range of Multispan™ PoE + Ethernet Switch products.
Providing both PoE+ 30W power and Ethernet transmission for up to four IP devices, the new Dantech ‘Multispan’ solutions consist of a dedicated multispan PoE power device and a separate dedicated Cisco switch, housed within a single secure enclosure. Offering system flexibility, installers can choose to locate the multispan device either at the network endpoint or midpoint.
Utilising the Cisco 10/100/1000 Gigabit full-duplex unmanaged switch, one network uplink and up to four IP devices (i.e. surveillance video, access control, or intercom) can be connected over Cat5 UTP cable. With no network configuration required, fast and simple connectivity saves installation time and money.
In addition to the standard Multispan PoE + Ethernet Switch model, to guard against mains power outages, the device is also available with integrated battery backup. The MultispanUPS™ versions maintain both the PSU and Ethernet switch, and for a typical 5W load, the 10Ah battery model will supply continuous power for 100 hours. These models are ideal to prevent any power and IP transmission supply failures, and the associated time-consuming IP end-device re-boot issues.
Responding to demand from customers, Dantech has engineered a flexible solution to enable installers to provide combined PoE & Ethernet transmission for a range of IP applications, and locate it at an end or midpoint of their choice,” says Tim Scott, Director at Dantech Electronic Engineering. “Along with the delivery of ultra-robust and secure power, for complete peace of mind, we chose Cisco technology for the Ethernet switch component due to the company’s world-famous reputation for reliability, making them our ideal technology partner.
The range of 4-port combined PoE+ power and Ethernet switch products is available in indoor (including rackmount) and outdoor enclosures.
As manufacturers of specialist power supplies and ancillary equipment for security applications, we have revealed incredible product reliability inherent to our range of popular 24VAC power supply products.
Over the company’s 40 years of designing and building electronic equipment, Dantech has endeavoured to uphold the ethos of ‘Best of British manufacturing and reliability’, supporting installers with reliable, high-quality power supplies and electronic ancillaries.
Highlighted in a recent engineering review, that over many years of production, the rate of failure of our 24VAC power supply products has remained consistently low, having been calculated as just 0.03% across the many thousands of products manufactured.
This astonishing reliability record has enabled Dantech products to deliver an ultra-robust and secure power supply solution, offering long-term cost investment and performance benefits for countless installations across the UK, Europe and Middle-East.
Offering installers and designers a flexible, simple and cost-effective solution, Dantech 24VAC products can be used for high-power consumption applications, such as large PTZ cameras, auxiliary lighting, wash-wipe function and heaters. They are available as indoor metal cased, outdoor IP66 and rackmount versions, with all connections inside and with all outputs individually fuse protected.
Commenting on the high-reliability findings, Tim Scott, Director at Dantech Electronic Engineering said:
Being specifically designed, manufactured and tested in Great Britain for the security industry, we’re proud that Dantech products can provide customers with such a proven reliable power solution, one that we are confident to deliver to the market, and backed by a 5-year warranty.
Drawing on over 40 years electronics manufacturing experience, Dantech has a reputation for proven product reliability and manufactures an extensive range of power supplies and custom equipment, all designed, manufactured and tested at its UK headquarters.
All Dantech SecurePoE products feature a secure enclosure with all connections inside. They include status monitoring and tamper contacts that can be used in a variety of ways to increase system security. Gigabit and 10/100 bandwidth products are available in various output configurations and mounting packages.
Manufactured and tested in Great Britain, Dantech SecurePoE products use British designed high efficiency and high reliability electronics. Products are compliant with IEEE 802.3:2012 (802.3at, 802.3af) and designed for use with all compatible load devices.
MidspanUPS products are available that include replaceable stand-by battery packs with Yuasa batteries. There are versions for both long and short stand-by durations available.
These are normally free door interlock controllers. When all doors are closed, their contacts are closed & are wired to release the other door(s). As soon as any door opens' its contacts lock the other doors immediately, and they stay locked until the first door's contact closes again. This then allows another door to open.
